Backlot Tour, Disney Studios, Disneyland Paris

DSC04544

This is a set of photographs taken during July 2008 of the Back lot tour ride at Disneyland Paris.

The ride is similar to the one at Orlando but the tour doesnt start on foot, each tour is done on the trams which you stay on until you return back to the loading bay.

Each trip lasts about 15 minutes and you have plenty of time for taking pictures during this trip.

I actually preferred this ride to the one we had done previously in Orlando back in Febraury, apart from been allot newer than the Orlando Back lot tour the duration was just right and didnt involve the pre show antics which are featured in Florida.

The Backlot tour ride opened in Walt Disney Studios, Disneyland Paris in March 2002 when the studios part of Disneyland Paris area was opened.

One of the shuttles from Armegeddon, obviously the one that didnt get blown up on entering the asteroid.

  1. Great images. I recently went to a lecture by one of Disneys marketing executives. All I can say is wow, the lengths they go to is amazing. For example they have a bakery in a Disney park and to enable the baked cakes, and bread to be fresh and ready the baking starts at 2am. The clever bit is they actually capture the small and compress that air in big under ground tanks. Then when teh park opens they gradually release the smell so people will buy more baked goods!!

    Just amazing levels of marketing.

  2. Hi, Thanks for the comments. Im never surprised at the lengths Disney will goto to keep customers coming back. I’d heard recently they value every single customer and if they perform well over the lifetime of the customer I think they estimate they make 60k usd per customer. Wish i was there now 😉
